Today, building applications reveal a new, residential development at 238 East 3rd Street, in Manhattan’s historically gritty East Village neighborhood. The build site measures approximately 50’ x 106’ with a full lot coverage of 5,253 square feet.
Permits have been filed for two new four-story residential buildings at 739 and 741 Fenimore Street in East Flatbush, Brooklyn. The site is five avenues away from the Winthrop Street subway station, serviced by the 2 and 5 trains, and fifteen blocks away from the Utica Avenue subway station, serviced by the 2, 3, 4 and 5 trains. The structure is also positioned near the substantial Kings County Hospital Center complex, and the Kingsbrook Jewish Medical Center. Joel Gluck of Spencer Equity is behind the applications.
Construction is progressing quickly at 200 Amsterdam Avenue, where a 51-story, 668-foot tall skyscraper will soon rise. When first announced, the building was to become the tallest skyscraper on the Upper West Side. That title was lost when Extell announced plans for 50 West 66th Street, a particularly striking 775-foot tall residential building designed by Snøhetta. But even the area’s second-tallest is too much for local NIMBYs, and with excavation work on the project now making rapid headway, opponents have begun engaging in increasingly deranged efforts to hoist a wall of red-tape around the southern blocks of the Upper West Side.
With so much focus on the rising developments along Central Park South, there hasn’t been much discussion of new penthouses rising on the other end of the greenery, mostly because they are very few and far between. One of those rarities is 145 Central Park North, a 14-story residential building near the center of Central Park North in Harlem, between 7th Avenue and Malcolm X Boulevard. Today, YIMBY has the first rendering of the project, which is being developed by Einhorn Development Group.
